I have a yidris deck and he is awesome. My favorite finisher is Aetherflux Reservoir.

Hey man, thanks for commenting again.

I agree that combo decks should have multiple win cons, and this one still does have a number of them via Rite of Replication, Reset/Reiterate combos, and even just casting a massive Epic Experiment can easily close out a game.

I also believe the deck runs a ton of card draw, tutors and deck looting... and Jori En, Ruin Diver is just way too slow in my play group as much as I like the card... the same is true for Pyromancer's Goggles.

I'll consider the Guttersnipe as I do like the Rite of Replication synergy you mentioned.

I've also thought about the Aetherflux Reservoir, it's just not a card I own and definitely requires some play testing... if I still ran storm it would 100% have to go in!

a combo deck should have multiple win con combos usealy

so maybe more draw

and then consider Guttersnipe as an alt win con, which also goes nicely with rite of replication.

and maybe Aetherflux Reservoir as another combo, doasnt work with copies but still.

Pyromancer's Goggles are also nice in general

Jori En, Ruin Diver is nice draw

also run Cyclonic Rift dont care what kind of deck you are runing this card is amazing and single handedly wins games not even raerly

Aetherflux Reservoir is mostly meant to use a large life total into killing players, which Serra Avatar can do as well. I forget to mention There is Noble Purpose for using with mass lifelinking, because the ability itself isn't lifelink.

Thank you for the suggestions! Unfortunately, Archangel of Thune, Crested Sunmare, and Necropotence are a bit outside my price range, but I'll consider them in case they drop in price.

Sunbond, Cradle of Vitality, and Angelic Accord all seem like greatincludes. I'm not really sure I need too many more lifelink enablers, but True Conviction seems good since double strike is always useful.

Aetherflux Reservoir could be good, but I am concerned that it'll only be gaining me 1-3 life per turn, so I'm not sure if I'll include it.

I don't think the reanimation ability from Whip of Erebos is too useful, so I probably won't include it.

What I think I would do then is change the deck to focus around Knight of the Reliquary as it can easily be slotted into any of the above deck types I listed to give you another way to win. It can act as a midrange beat stick, it can fetch lands to trigger landfall, and it can fetch specific lands to combo off. From there, do you want an aggro or combo deck? What you have right now does not work because it does not fall in any category. It is just kind of a pile of cards that do not work well together. The only binding theme is lands matter, and thats not really good enough to win. Once you have a cohesive theme of aggro or combo, we can get pieces in here that actually synergize with each other and will thus help you win faster rather than hoping that one of your 6 different win cons eventually get you there. That is why Knight of the Reliquary is so good. He acts as a win con himself, but also directly helping any secondary win con. He adds to the consistency of the other win con while acting as win con itself. In contrast, Dragonmaster Outcast does not help aAetherflux Reservoir at all.

Aetherflux Reservoir, Archangel of Thune, Sunbond and Cradle of Vitality could do a lot of work in here with the lifegain effects. Whip of Erebos and True Conviction as extra lifelink givers, plus the Conviction give double strike as well. Crested Sunmare and Angelic Accord can turn that life into a board presence and fuel your Ayli. You can also Necropotence to turn that large life totals into cards.

Decrepit_Angel on Paradox Scepter Storm: cEDH Primer

Lilbrudder Thank you for the response and explanations. I have not encountered much in terms of the creature based cEDH decks so those changes make far more sense to me now. I'll try out the new changes and see if I end up agreeing with them after some testing. Also, I forgot to mention, I tried out Copy Artifact because I had one lying around. In the 15 or so times I have seen it, it has been absurdly good. It usually just copies a mana rock, but it does absurd things if you use it to copy an Aetherflux Reservoir if you are trying to storm off the "fair" way by just casting a bunch of spells. And a few days ago, I used it to copy an opponents Chromatic Lantern while there was a Blood Moon in play which actually allowed me to play that game. If you haven't already tried it, I would give it a shot.
